CubeCraft Games

Hi everyone,

A slightly different post than usual!

We're making changes to how we run CubeCraft to ensure that you, our community, are at the heart of everything we are trying to achieve. We've got some people stepping up into new roles and so I wanted to take time explain our decisions.

FYI: There is a TLDR at the bottom! I've stolen some pictures from the Design team twitter to add some life into this post though!

First a brief backstory:

As I'm sure a lot of you are aware: 2018 and 2019 were tough years for us. Our server shrank and with it our team, resources and ability to deliver the things that we all wanted to see happen.

Over the past 6 months our Bedrock server and our marketplace team have had great success which we are incredibly proud of. However our Java network is and remains the heart of the CubeCraft Games network and it’s unfortunate we have not been able to put as much effort into as we would have liked.

We’ve always been proud of our community (some exceptions do apply...) and we were upset at the increasing sense of frustration and upset. A lot of this has been due to a perceived lack of communication - where we have definitely faulted but as explained above the past few years have been tough and there’s not been a lot of positive news to give out and so, perhaps mistakenly, we chose silence instead.
It's hard for us to be honest with you about issues - our goal is to provide great entertainment, not bore you with the details!

Looking forward:

Myself and the rest of the team are really excited for 2020 we’ve got some big things in the works and are wanting to refocus effort onto the Java network.

At the back end of 2019 we took on four new developers: @RDev_ , @Palombo, @Mindgamesnl and Pico. Effectively...

What do you call a seasonal update without maps? "A bad update!". That's why we're now adding maps into our Christmas event! As usual, part 2 introduces our seasonal maps for SkyWars, EggWars, Lucky Islands, Tower Defence, MinerWare and Duels! Along with the maps, we've added challenges for most of the maps. There's an Explorer and Winner challenge. The Explorer challenge is where you need to play all of the maps to win the reward, which is 1 Christmas Cubelet. The Winner challenge is where you need to win in all of the maps to win the reward, which is 2 Christmas Cubelets. Think you've got the frostbite to give it a go? Challenge accepted!

Here are just some of the maps now available on our Java network:

As usual with seasonal events, our amazing build team creates maps based around the seasonal event. So now it's time to introduce our Christmas maps! Last year we had 3 maps. But this year, we have 7! With 4 BRAND NEW maps to play on. Between 2018 and now, we've add new gamemodes for our games, SkyWars and EggWars, which means more maps are needed for them, so read below to learn all about the new Christmas maps for 2019!

Hello CubeCrafters and Merry Christmas!

Wow, it's Christmas already? Well you know what that means... it's time to announce that Christmas has come to CubeCraft! This year we've got a lot of content for you. We've added back one of our classic Christmas games, our famous present hunt is back and wonderful Christmas Cubelets filled with chilly loot are back. Want to learn about this update more, read below!

For one of the biggest additions to this Christmas release. Present Rush is back for 2019! Wow... it's been a while, it's been sitting on the top shelf getting dusty, but now it's back for everyone to play and enjoy over the Christmas period! So if you're not familiar with Present Rush, it's one of our classic Christmas games. It's a game of speed, collection, skill and agility.

The aim of the game is to collect the pieces of fuel from the middle arena and bring them back to your present production zone to feed your generators. As the generators are filled with fuel they will start producing presents. The player with the most presents at the end of the game wins! Remember - the presents don't count until they fall into Santa's bag at the end of the production belt.

Powerups will spawn within the arena to help you collect the most fuel as well as help you ruin the chances of other players collecting precious fuel. Other players also have the ability to punch and steal your fuel from you, and you should avoid taking fall damage - you'll drop fuel as a consequence! You'll have speed from the start of the game, but the more fuel you're carrying, the slower you move! You may think collecting the fuel from the arena is simple, but you're sadly mistaken. Overtime the arena decays, making it harder and harder to collect the fuel. If you fall off the arena, you'll lose all the current fuel pieces you're carrying.
